In “Neural Network,” the artist is reimagining and recombining works of naturalist artists and masterful medical illustrators to make a statement about human perception and natural selection. Within this piece, you see neural networks as well as the main organs of the nervous system. Our perceptions of the world are created by our neural network and our brains, not to reflect reality but to instead keep us alive and reproducing. These neural networks are deeply intertwined with the living world around us as humans are voyeurs of the natural world. Living organisms depend upon one another for their reproductive success.
Amy Salomone of Forms Most Beautiful is a mixed media digital collage artist who mixes science and art to explore man’s place in the natural world. Her educational and professional background in science is evident in her art pieces which explore concepts such as evolution and natural selection, animal behaviour, perception and our story within and of this universe. Each piece is designed to tell a part of this story and to act as starting points for thought and discussion, with which we can change our perspectives of how we see ourselves.
